COVID-19 ALERT

You may not be on campus but we are and we're still ready to help, no matter where you are:

  • The Service Update page on our website has all the latest information about our services and any changes to normal operations, including library support for those self-isolating.
  • The Learning Hub is open from 8am -10pm daily and you can go to the shelves to collect any books you need as long as you can wear a mask. If you do not feel able to come into the Learning Hub for any reason then we have a click and collect service for books, which enables you, or a nominated person, to collect the items from campus.  
  • If you need to return items to us, you can either drop them into the book return bin in the Visitor Centre next door to McColls, or any book return bin throughout the Learning Hub. If you are off-site and not planning to come back for any reason, or have completed your course and you still have books from the library then email library.returns@northampton.ac.uk and we will advise you on how to get the books back to us.  
  • E-Books and e-journals – and remember, around 80% of our resources are available online as e-books, e-journals or online videos, so check on NELSON to see what we hold electronically.   
  • Please do not stress about your library account or loans. If you need anything at all please just get in touch at libraryhelp@northampton.ac.uk. We are a friendly and helpful bunch  😊😊😊

Rooms on Waterside campus are usually made up of two letters, followed by three numbers. For example, LH404. The two letters are the building where the room is located;

  • CH = Creative Hub (Waterside campus)
  • IC = Innovation Centre (off campus)
  • LH = Learning Hub (Waterside campus)
  • SN = Senate building (Waterside campus)
  • SZ = Sport Zone (Waterside campus)
  • WH = Walgrave building (Avenue campus)

The three numbers provide the floor of the building and the room number; the first number is the floor (0 is on the ground floor, 1 on the first floor, and so on), the final two numbers are the room number on that floor (counting clockwise from the lifts). So, in the example of LH404, this room is in the Learning Hub, on the fourth floor, and it is the fourth room on that floor if you counted rooms starting next to the lifts. Fortunately, the rooms are all clearly labelled and signposted, so you don't actually need to count them (phew!), but it does give you a good idea where it might be located when you are looking for it.

The buildings all have clear signage pointing to the rooms on each floor, so this will help you find rooms. If you are ever unsure, ask a member of University staff (or a fellow student), we're all in this together and people will be happy to help you find the room you're looking for.

Have a look at the Timetable pages on the Student Hub for more information about the various rooms on and off campus.
